A Valentine Poem

This special day of love
Calls for a note of gratitude.
And I just want to thank you so
For all the things you do.
You care for your students
(And parents alike).
You give all of yourself
To us little tykes.
It goes not unnoticed
Your daily sacrifice.
Your costly work is
Valued at the greatest price.

Support 5th Grade’s Krispy Kreme Fundraiser

This spring, 5th grade will be taking a field trip to historical Philadelphia. Our students will be selling Krispy Kreme certificates for $8 to help offset the costs of this trip. Each certificate can be redeemed for one dozen original glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme and can be used at any time. This fundraiser will run from now through Tuesday, February 21st. The certificates will be delivered to the students the week of February 27th, so they may distribute them to their supporters. Crofton Elementary School 5th grade students will be canvassing their neighborhoods, selling these certificates.  Please support our 5th graders!

This is not a PTA sponsored fundraiser, however we are excited to help spread the word to help promote this great program.  Your PTA maintains its longstanding tradition of donating the proceeds from the May 1st Ledo Pizza Night fundraiser to support the 5th Grade Year End Celebrations.
